intimate boutique hotel in San Jose in the center of the arts district. Great service and great decor. Gardens and pool are beautiful. Very simple in what you need. I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is clean. The room it's spacious, great location. Quiet and comfortable. We got the Junior Suite and it was like an apartment. They are pet friendly and have the space for your dog. Wonderful

The gardens are immaculate and beautiful. The decor is absolutely lovely. It is a place of beauty and peace in the midst of bustling old town San Jose. The beds were very comfortable. The hotel is located just a few blocks from Restaurant Jazmine which offered excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner. Walking distance to the cathedral and the Zocalo. Many...

This is a charming hotel, well situated for access to the town and amenities. It has its own restaurant but we were only there one night and didn't eat there, although the menu looked nice. Doesn't do breakfast. There was a 2017 fun fair operating at the back of the hotel, but it appeared to shut early evening and we...

I could have stayed here longer. Comfortable beds in a quaint setting close to great restaurant Jazmin's. Lots of shopping or browzing opportunities. Very nice but small pool. I would recommend this place for anyone looking for a more authentic experience than the all inclusive resorts.

Spent three nights here and wanted to get away from the ritzy new places to enjoy a more authentic experience. The pool suites are very nice, we enjoyed dips in the pool to cool off between walks to different restaurants. Overall a great place to stay to enjoy the old town and the galleries.

Terrible experience dealing with the crooks at the front desk. They told us one price, and charged another, all extremely shady. I would Never stay here again. The disputes over the bills ruined our holiday.

As director of the hotel, I took time to review your complaint and discuss with staff. We made every accommodation to facilitate you and your friend being able to stay on the poolside suites, which are more expensive, than what was initially reserved. Our staff offered additional discount which was applied, to the final bill. It is unfortunate you were...

If you think of Mexico with a Spanish influence, the smell of exotic flowers, and architecture that puts you into a dream, you're home. The photos displayed are completely accurate and the gardens are so beautiful.
